First off, you may be asking, "exactly how many miles is a 5K?" A 5K is 3.1 miles. Simply Running are here to help you achieve your goal of beginning to run your first 5K. Too many people have been turned off of running simply by trying to start off too fast. Their bodies rebel, and they wind up disillusioned, wondering why anyone would possibly want to run in the first place.
The best way to buy your running shoes is to visit a specialist retailer such as Simply Running, where you will receive friendly, expert help and advice on choosing the most suitable shoe for you personally. If it is not possible to get to a specialist shop then you should try and get to know your foot type. The most common and simplest method is the 'Wet Foot Test'.
